What we are doing
In this course, our students gain essential hard and soft skills to help them create daily routines, during and after employment.
Our volunteers share their knowledge and expertise to encourage students on the way to achieving their goals.
At the end of the training, our students earn certificates that will help them in their pursuit of employment.
Why we are doing this
Of Swiss population are foreign nationals
People migrate to Switzerland daily
Up to 60%
Of the workforce in many spheres is made up of migrants
The programme is designed to support adult people who moved to Switzerland from communities all over the world in search of better living conditions. It provides them with IT skills necessary for employment and daily life in modern society. The project also includes a series of soft skill master-classes, during which volunteers from Acronis and our partner organization the Schaffhausen Institute of Technology (SIT) will share their own experience in good presentation-making, effective learning, and job interview best practices.
The two pilot groups of 21 students in total finished their intense 5-week training on August 7, 2020. Their families, friends, tutors and local authorities joined the students for a small graduation ceremony to share this meaningful moment with them and wished success in their future endeavors.
